    Today is my Lucky day
    I was walking down the street (today is trash day) and there it was a CUBE BOX AND ALL!!! So i grabbed it. When I finished my walk i pluged it in and boom it booted up. Why would anyone throw out a working cube. Mind you it only has a 450MHz processor, so I ordered a 1.8GHz upgrade and I will install that when it gets here. Being on sick leave and being able to take walks during the day KICKS BUTT <-- keeping it clean

    Unfortunately there were no speakers or the speakers adapter so i went to CompUSA and got an imic

    Geez! You must of done a "double-take" when you saw it sitting there. I remember a person on this forum finding an Apple 1 (wood case) in the trash, but not wanting to lug it home. That would've been worth some moolah too.

    I think Macman went all crazy up in Pennsylvania and tried to hit you with his Cube from a speeding car. What did you do?
